Report Evaluation criteria evaluating the volume of protests an offeror engages in? in Contract Award Process Posted September 14 Can an offerors history of bad-faith protest somehow be considered during source selection? My basic very-much-not-an-expert understanding you'd have to pass two tests (note to the actual experts on wifcon, please correct me here) 1) you'd have to demonstrate how that is tied to your RFP's requirements/objectives, expected to a discriminator, and an indicator of best value. Basically, FAR 15.3. As @formerfed wrote, maybe... if you could reasonably argue what's evidence of an offeror having a propensity to file frivolous or bad-faith protests, and how that would be a negative. I think that is possible in some specific cases, but generally would be very difficult to do. 2) Isn't prohibited by law, policy, or convention (i.e., there is NO history of protest decisions effectively squashing what you want to do) See comment by @bob7947 My hunch is that you wouldn't be the first person to do this, and there is precedent ('case law' / protest decisions).
